Dallas Cowboys Release LB Rashaan Evans After Frisco Marijuana Arrest
The Dallas Cowboys have cut ties with linebacker Rashaan Evans following his arrest in Frisco for marijuana possession.
The Dallas Cowboys swiftly cut ties with linebacker Rashaan Evans, announcing his release just one day after his arrest in Frisco on charges of marijuana possession. Frisco police confirmed the arrest, citing Evans for possession of 2 to 4 ounces of marijuana.
Evans‘ tenure with the Cowboys was short-lived, with just nine games played during the 2023 season, accumulating a total of nine tackles. The team had signed him after his release from the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad.
A former first-round pick, Evans began his NFL journey with the Tennessee Titans in 2018, spending four years with the team before a brief stint with the Atlanta Falcons preceding his Cowboys signing.
The abrupt release from the Cowboys signifies a setback in Evans’ professional career, marking a deviation from his earlier promise as a first-round draft choice. This unexpected turn raises questions about his future prospects in the NFL following this unfortunate incident.
